Q: Why did you start CrossFit?
A: I made a promise to myself to stop making excuses and to start living the way I wanted to each day. I’d always felt some aspects of CrossFit were ominously beyond my capabilities. It was time to take down that Goliath.
Q: Why Octane?
A: Initially, I had some friends who were members that strongly recommended it. I immediately grew to really love the coaching staff here. It’s a great community and they’re all genuinely inspiring in their own unique ways.
Q: Goals for the year?
A: I’d just like to become proficient in all of the fundamental techniques and lifts. Hoping to start 2019 strong by only jumping rope forwards instead my typical backwards singles.
Q: Any advice for the new members?
A: Patience! Everybody here is on a different path when it comes to their own fitness goals. Take your time, work towards developing good fundamentals, and understand training is a marathon not a sprint. The hardest part is just walking through that door those first couple times and solidifying that commitment to better yourself. Nobody here’s going to discourage you from pushing yourself to be better than you were the day before!
